          Abstract

          This study examines causes of death, years of life lost, and health and drug use characteristics associated with mortality over an 8 to 10 year period in a sample of methamphetamine users who had and had not received substance use disorder treatment (N = 563). Decedents reported initiating their methamphetamine use for different reasons than surviving methamphetamine users, and some of these differences varied by treatment status. Study findings provide additional detail on long-term health and mortality outcomes in a diverse sample of methamphetamine users, which may inform public health strategies targeting the comparable and divergent needs of treated and untreated populations.
